CHRISTMAS Decor Haul! Plaid+Rustic Style

YOU GUYS! Today is November 19th. Which means only 35 days until CHRISTMAS. Can you believe it? I can’t. We finally have snow in MN. This is actually really late for us! Usually we have a few inches around Halloween! It snowed pretty good on Friday night and I was instantly wanting to decorate! So much fun.

I moved into my own house with my husband in February; SO that means I had to get all my own Christmas decor! I was seriously so excited to pick everything out. Almost everything I got was from Hobby Lobby besides the tree (the obsession is real). 

I was looking all over Pinterest for some design inspo and came across so much plaid. And I absolutely fell in love. So my theme is what I like to call “Plaid+Rustic” You will see a lot of plaid materials, pine-cones, frosted snow, burlap, & natural elements 🙂

Hope you enjoy!!

25 Days Of Christmas!

This year I’m joining in on 25 Days of Christmas! It’s a fun way to share your favorites about this time of year 🙂 Lately I’ve been very stressed and overwhelmed and just not into the “holiday spirit” but now that it’s officially December 1st, I’m forcing myself to snap out of it! I’m hoping this will also help me dedicate more time to my blog, because I really do enjoy it! So, I’m not promising I will post everyday up until Christmas, but I am promising that when I do post (I’m aiming for 3-4 times a week) there will be something Christmas related! I’m excited so start spreading the holiday cheer! I’m starting out with answering the question “What are you most excited for this Christmas?”

Welllllll… a lot of things! I have a few fun holiday dinners planned with old friends that I don’t see as much as I’d like to which I’m super excited about, as well as family get togethers which are always my favorite. Especially since we have a baby in the family now, I want to soak up all the time I can get with him! ❤ Of course I’m veryyy excited for the FOOD. Thanksgiving and Christmas food and desserts are the best! I’m hoping to do a little baking of my own this year. I’m also super pumped about my year end break at work coming up December 24-January 4th. Talk about some much needed relaxation time! I plan to sleep a lot, get some things done that I’ve been putting off like clean out my closet, and organize my makeup, and hopefully start house hunting! I already have a few New Years resolutions in mind, can’t wait to share them 🙂

Sorry about the long text-post.. if you read that all, kudos! 😉 Here’s a picture of my nephew to make you smile, because I know he sure makes me smile! He’s so dang cute and snuggly, I cant stand it!

Happy Monday!
